SNAP® Outcomes

Disruptive Behaviour

CDI is committed to providing programs and services that are accountable, client-centred and effective. As part of that commitment, CDI monitors the effectiveness and quality of its programs in many ways. SNAP evaluation and research uses standardized measures from a variety of sources and informants, and the most stringent research and evaluation designs to achieve the highest effectiveness designations. Our research has focused on establishing measurable, positive and sustainable changes for both child and family. With over 30 years of research and evaluations (internal and external studies), these findings are not only exemplary but repeatable.
